Handmade Heirloom: Anvil Wrought Iron Furniture









I met a new friend, Vitania, today via Facebook. The blogging, social media world continues to surprise and delight me. One moment uninspired with nothing left to say; the next - passionate, exhilarated and over-flowing with new words for new ideas and people. Vitania has an incredible story about her family business, Anvil Wrought Iron Furniture - a Canadian company that works with Designers and Retailers around the globe. When the company her father was working for started to fall apart, he led a group of men, all co-workers, to pool their resources and keep their business alive. (isn't that amazing!) With her father at the helm, they formed a company called Anvil Fireside Accessories Ltd. that supplied hearth products to pretty much everyone. Tool sets, wood holders, spark guards, andirons….you name it they made it! That was 30 years ago. Today, Anvil is completely family owned and operated, and Vitania, of course, has the pleasure of working and learning, with and from, her father. Over the last 3o years, the line has expanded dramatically to include beautifully crafted Iron Furnishings, as well as a fabulous collection of Outdoor furniture. They operate under the name Anvil Wrought Iron Furniture to include this expanded product offering. To die for people! To die for! All hand made! Located in Mississauga, Ontario, (just outside of Toronto) a small but talented team of people come together to make some of the most beautiful iron furniture today. Made using traditional methods, steel is cut, forged, hammered, shaped, polished and painted. As a custom manufacturer Anvil offers their clients the choice to design exactly what they want. Their products are designed to last a lifetime. The kitchen table and chairs you will sit at, eat, laugh and cry over. A bed your children will crawl into in the middle of the night, and you will long for when you are away from home. Pieces that are meant to be passed from one generation to another. Please take some time over the weekend to tour their website (and catalogue). You will be longing to purchase several of their pieces....either for yourself or a client(s)....or both!
